>>> the first obama administration official testifying before a house committee about the botched obama care rollout has apologized, weakly, but then she maintained the kris acceptable, incredibly, is working. listen to marilyn tavenner construct what is at the very least ahn alternative universe. >> we have a system that's working. we're going to improve the speed of that system. >> excuse me. >> yes? >> you're saying the system right now is working? >> i'm saying it's working. it's just not working at the speed that we want and at the success rate that we want. and those are the things we're working on. >> congressman trey gowdy, member of the house oversight judiciary committees. he chairs the immigration and border security subcommittee. congressman, great to have you with us. let's start with, if we may, obama care. this president lied. his administration lied. and persisted over a period of more than three years in maintaining the fiction that people could keep their insurance plans if they chose. your reaction? >> well, i hate it for my fellow citizens, but there were lots
the obama administration and the democratic party appeaplectic, t insurance is scared because of the individual mandate because the result will be to tear up their business model as you know and tear up profits. we're looking at the prospect here, if there isn't careful reasoning and a careful understanding amongst everyone here about a direction to head toward that we're talking about one-sixth of the economy that is now vulnerable because a bsite, as the president put it, didn't work because obama care itself is built now on what we see as a very, very faulty assumption and presumption because of the mandate that young people are going to sign up for health they typically do not need. these risks are very high. where are the republicans headed now, and what is the course you all will follow? >> well, we are going to continue to get to the bottom of this. you know, you pointed out one major issue here, and the cybersecurity issue, as you heard, that we're very concerned about that. you know, there are americans who are managing to get onto the website at this point at some ti
there are at least half a dozen major controversies inside the obama administration that the president apparently didn't know anything about. today in the "wall street journal" front page headline says obama unaware as u.s. spied on world leaders. and i i believe that's true. while some americans think about mr. obama knew about fast and furious, irs, benghazi, libya, and the nasa spying while they were in -- nsa spying while they were in development. the president does not manage in a microway. he delegates often to incompetent people. most vivid example is the enormous screw up in obama care. that's the president's signature issue and he was apparently totally unaware that the roll out was broken. now, i could be wrong. i could be wrong about this. barack obama may have micromanaged all that stuff i mentioned. it's possible, but i believe improbable. last night on "60 minutes," the horror of four americans being murdered in benghazi, libya are was portrayed. lt. colonel andy wood said he warned the obama administration al qaeda was hunting the american ambassador. >> tried to assassinate the br
the obama administration al qaeda was hunting the american ambassador. >> tried to assassinate the british ambassador. wood says to him, it came as no surprise because al qaeda using a familiar tactic, had stated their intent in an online posting, saying they would attack the red cross, the british, and then the americans in benghazi. >> and you watched. >> as they did each one of those. >> and the british mission and the only ones left. >> were us. they made good on two out of the three promises. it was a matter of time until they captured the third one. >> and washington was aware of that? >> they knew we monitored it. we included that in our reports to it both state department and dod. >> the problem with colonel woods' assertion is that we don't know exactly who he warned? was it secretary of state clinton? secretary of defense panetta? both deny knowing of specific threats. and, of course, president obama says he did not knowed extent of the danger either. after the intent was underway the administration did not take action. >> you did had this conversation with the defense. you asked
. reporting on obama care, allegations administration is trying to sal silence doubts about the rollout and edward snowden's latest bombshell. they listened in on friendly global leaders and american's top spy said there is nothing new. i'll talk to glenn greenwald, what he says. >>> catch a wave and you're sitting on top of the world and catch this wave and you may land in the record books. i'll talk to a surfer on what it is like to hang ten on a 100-foot ocean wave, only here. >>> we begin with big new developments in the obama care story. this is different from the political war fair you see night after night on the partisan news channels because health care reform is so i'm fortablet we're doing what we can to turn down the noise and turn up the facts. item one, a document that clearly shows when the white house got the warning the healthcare.gov website was a disaster in the making. >> reporter: cnn learned at the obama administration was warned in september the obama care website wasn't ready to go live. the main contractor, cgi issued this confidential report to the agency overs
in the making. >> reporter: cnn learned at the obama administration was warned in september the obama care website wasn't ready to go live. the main contractor, cgi issued this confidential report to the agency overseeing the healthcare.gov rollout. it warned of risks and issues. the report gave the highest priority thing to things like we don't have access to monitoring tools, not enough time in schedule to conduct adequate performance testing and hub services are intermittently unavailable, short for the site isn't working sometimes. cgi in september said they are putting a team in place ato alert when the hub goes down. the head of cms, the agency that received the report kicked off testimony by saying she's sorry. >> we know consumers are edge tore purchase this coverage and millions of americans that attempted to use healthcare.gov to shop and enroll, i want to apologize to you that the website has not worked as well as it should. >> reporter: marlin was peppered with questions about when she'll have rollout numbers for obama care. she stuck to a scrip. >> we'll have them available mi
. >> this is not -- the french and the obama administration have no sympathy. the germans do. >> i agree. two issues. access, damage, negligence, trying to get a handle on it is one issue. this begs for a larger question. what you heard there in that interview is look, the president is going to dos in job. they are protecting the united states interns. the only thing that you don't have allies, you have interest. we are not going to stop surveilling. >> sounds like you don't think it should be an issue. you think this is a national security issue. >> yes. >> the of the president's base doesn't like this nsa business. >> a large part. >> he is sticking to it and said what is the president more upset about? the revelations or the tactics? revelations. he made no bones about it. >> he is right and they don't know what he has. that poses a big problem and i spent the last two weeks in germany and that's all anyone wanted to talk about. >> this is the number one story. >> it's a huge story and a huge problem, but they are going to get to the bottom of it. it's the uncertainty of knowing when things will come out
the drums of war. yesterday on abc cheney gave a harsh assessment of the obama administration's policy in the middle east. >> i think our friends no longer count on us, no longer trust us, nor adversaries fear us. 9/11, saudis, egyptians, many in that part of the world no longer have confidence in the united states. >> cheney also threw in his two cents on the republican party. >> i think it's very important we bring in a new generation of leadership. i think after the presidential election last year, we got whipped. there's a lot of work to be done, no question about it. >> not just the television spotlight, a new book "days of fire" closely examines the bush administration and cheney's relationship with the desire. in the book baker details the decision making behind war in iraq, guantanamo, expansion of the national security state and hurricane katrina. while cheney was no doubt a powerful force in the white house, he dispels the myth as dick cheney's puppet. he was unquestionably the most influential vice president in american history. but he subordinated himself to bush the way no
on the planet and the other part of the obama administration can't keep a website up. you almost want to swim responsibilities here. >> switch the two brains. >> could it effectively do the spying on angela merkel and someone else do the website. the obama administration would be in better shape. >> what are the implications of both. how angry are americans about either one. i don't want to go too far into the ac stuff. i think that is the man with two brains. but the idea of collecting metadata on americans. i think there is some people activists, seekers, writers, journalists that are legitimately upset about this. i'm not entirely sure the american public would begin to litigate this. >> i wouldn't go to aca. i don't think that's a good analogy. i do think good analogy to drones, deportation, all these policies that rhetorically, especially when he was running for office first time around he distanced himself from. then all of a sudden, inch by inch, moment by moment, we realized he's doubled down on some of the policies bush and cheney began. the american people, as for their anger, i don
week for the obama administration. >> right now the ellis island museum is opening once again, seeing its first visitors since it was damaged by hurricane sandy last year. hello, i'm wolf blitzer reporting today from washington. we start with the fallout over the latest revelations about spying at the nsa and tapping of world leaders' phones. the big question people are asking now is, what did the president know and when did he know it. i'm joined by chief national security kurt correspondent jim sciutto who has been covering the story. crux of the controversy is what. >> well, the crux right now is what did the preds know and when. there's some conflicting information out there. a german newspaper reporting he knew in detailed form in 2010 about this spying going up to and including angela merkel's cell phone. this is something the white house and nsa deny. "wall street journal" reports the president was only made aware of this last summer. conflicting at this point. neither answers is satisfying because either he didn't have enough oversight or he hasn't been entirely forthcoming. d
the obama administration was going to do it. one of the things that i think is clear here, the obama administration has no trust in anything that the health industry tells them how to run a health plan. i think it's indicative of what happens when somebody tries to run a business who thinks they're smarter than you are. >> drew, why would the white house not be willing to do that? >> right now you it's the federal government that's the biggest customer for these insurance companies. government-backed plans accounted for 48% of health care policies last year, anderson, a number that's expected to grow this year and years to come. basically, the insurance companies were in position to just be quiet. >> have you heard from the white house about this? what's their side of the story? >> yeah, pushing back, jay carney just sent this note on allegations of white house pressure being placed on insurance executives. he writes that accusation is preposterous and inaccurate. plus it ignores the fact that every day insurance companies are talking about the rollout. in large part because they are

. the obama administration is doing that now. they can change that in a heartbeat through administrative change. they have not done that. they need a legislative change and stop the legislation. >> thank you. thanks for coming in. >> appreciate it. >>> coming up next, a legend. dr. maya angelou joins us. she'll tell us why she's lending her voice to a new fight curbing standardized school testing. stay with us.

". >> i'm gregg jarrett in for bill hemmer. the obama administration is not actually denying the information. the health and human services department is down playing released documents. let me quote them. they appear to be notes. do not include enrollments, statistics. we will release enrollment stats on monthly basis after coordinating information from different sources paper, online, call centers, verifying with insurers and collecting data from states. martha: byron york, "washington examiner" and fox news contributor. what do you make about the number six. >> now we know why the administration is secretive about the numbers. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius was asked by congress about this she wouldn't give it. we know the number was beyond embarrassing. six people on day one. had a total of 248 by the next day. this has really stunned a lot of people. especially democrats, who voted for this. they basically summoned top white house officials including white house chief of staff to capital hill yesterday to explain this. you know they wanted to find
, especially german chancellor angela merkel. obviously you're not a member of the obama administration, but do you find that credible? could it be that there would be surveillance programs of that type that president obama would not know about? >> jake, i'm not going to get into the specifics. it would be inappropriate if there were such a program, i couldn't talk about it. it would be classified. >> do you think the snowden leaks have hurt america's ability to defend itself? >> i do. i think he's a traitor. i think -- i hope we can catch him at some point and that he receives the justice he deserves. >> how have they hurt the united states? i think there are a lot of people, especially in the media or the civil libertarian community who think it's good that the american people now know of all the surveillance that is being conducted purportedly to protect us. >> well, the problem i have with snowden is he had access to classified information. he violated the conditions under which he got those. he's a traitor. pure and simple. and i don't think -- i don't think you can judge him any other way
.s. under the obama administration, is backing off a lot of the burden sharing, a lot of the heavy lifting that traditionally the u.s. has done in support of its allies over the past. >> because of the fallout, bought of the anger amongst the world leaders, julian, do you think someone's head should roll over this? >> well, we're going to see what the administration does. i think two things to remember. president obama himself raised a lot of the expectations about the differences with how he would conduct national security operations and those resonated both here and around the world. so it might be that in the end, he tries to blame someone. he himself now by -- with this report coming out that he ordered this to stop, it's something of an admission this shouldn't be business as usual. and the second thing is, this is a surveillance that's very different than people were used to in previous years because of e-mail and internet spying. so i think the president is going to do something. and i do think he's feeling that the political fallout is significant. >> christiane and julian, my than

was reportedly livid about the surveillance and called president obama to register her displeasure. but the spying may have begun as far back as 2002, the early days of the bush administration, before merkel even became chancellor. and that timeline makes this clip from 2006 even creepier! i can't help but wonder if bush had gotten a tip from the nsa about how merkel mentioned on the phone she enjoyed the occasional back rub. here's the craziest part about this whole thing, it's not that we were tapping the german chancellor's phones, which is not necessarily that surprising, even though it involved an ally, it is that, apparently, president obama did not know we were doing it, according to a report from the "wall street journal" out today. the spying on merkel was part of the massive surveillance operation put in place by president george w. bush after the september 11th attacks, which members of the bush administration continue to defend to this day. >> we do have a fantastic intelligence capability worldwide against all kinds of potential issues and concerns. we are vulnerable,
